Mary Rutan’s athletic training service program began in 2013 with two area schools. At that time, funding was done through a 50/50 cost sharing of salary and benefits for each trainer.
The Mary Rutan Foundation provides funding through a grant to each school district to assist in the cost reduction for the schools.
